Answer

Hi Jo-ann, thank you for your question. The wrinkle lines you describe are a common sign of ageing. Ageing skin is associated with a loss of collagen which results in the thinning of the skin, as well as a loss of structural integrity or weakening of the skin, which leads to wrinkles. Depending on the condition of your skin, we recommend a combination of non-surgical treatments for this type of static wrinkling (facial lines that are evident even when your face is at rest).

Injectable fillers, laser rejuvenation treatments, PDT, Skin Needling, Mesotherapy and Carboxytherapy are mainly used for static wrinkling. Fillers soften lines and larger wrinkles by plumping them out so they look less evident at rest. In some cases, the combination of Botox and fillers are used when the line or wrinkle is very deep and weakening the muscle action will help preserve the longevity of the filler. This is most common in the furrows between the eyebrows or bleed lines on the lip.

I hope this has helped in your quest for answers!
